My patient, Veronica Vail, was murdered in her Park Avenue apartment. Lt. John Franklin asks my help in finding the killer. We interview her husband Roland, his daughter by a former marriage who never liked Veronica, and Carlos de la Cuesta, a handsome, black-haired drag queen in love with Roland. Lt. Franklin hypothesizes that a stranger broke into the Vail apartment to steal a painting. Roland confirms that an expensive painting has disappeared. A maid named Lottie Lobell tells us that while looking out the window on the day of the murder, she saw a black-haired man run away from the building carrying a painting. He is found and brought in for questioning. Using purely psychological clues, I confront all the suspects with the truth. The killer collapses under my inquisition, and confesses.

Mysterious and thrilling Dr. Bond pens a great story, and introduces Dr. Mary Wells, who assists the NYPD. It's a story that you can tell stems from Bond's experiences, and I like that it's a good solid mystery. With unpredictability, the story has multiple layers and is not just a typical mystery. It's not a typical anything, and it works. I know this is the first book in the series, and I look forward to reading more about Dr. Wells, and anything from Dr. Bond.
